The Villa "Na Cichej" and its history
The building located in Chicha St. in Szklarska Poręba was erected in the beginning of the 20th century by the Schude family living in the region. The legal owner of the building, which already back then was a guesthouse, was Mrs. Maria Schmude, and that is how the house got its name,“Haus Anna Maria”. The building was extremely modern, equipped with a plumbing system with hot and cold water, central heating, and bathrooms.
In the years following the war, the building was used as a holiday house for the Polish President’s office and during this period it was called the “Mountain Belvedere”. Afterwards, for many years, it was subjected to excessive use, which, combined with lack of any renovations, took it to the brink of deterioration.
In 2009, it was sold by Szklarska Poręba City to its current owner who gave the building a brand new life. After an almost two-year renovation and restoration, the building once again became a guesthouse in 2012.
